Located along the scenic famous South Walton County Hwy 30A on the beautiful Emerald Coast. This newly redorcorated property is situated along the western end of 30A close to unique shopping, award winning restaurants and quaint art and dress shops.

Spacious 2100 square feet, four-bedroom, four and 1/2 bath, townhouse located in quiet Santa Rosa Beach accommodates up to 12 people and has beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy high speed internet wi-fi service while enjoying a cup of coffee or a cold drink of your choice from either of the three decks and watching a beautiful Emerald Coast sunrise or sunset. This large townhouse is an awesome property for a single or multiple families to spend a week or longer on a wonderful beach vacation.

There are several bike rental companies nearby that will deliver bikes to you or you can bring your own. Either way it is a great way to explore the area.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this rental. There were 10 of us and it was perfect for us - didn't feel crowded. Everything was clean, kitchen was stocked very well with essentials for cooking meals, plenty of towels, etc. As mentioned in a previous review, there are a lot of stairs, but that didn't impact us at all and was expected since we had 3 floors. And location was good - across the street from the beach. It was a bit of a trek to get to the beach (especially when you're hauling stuff for 10 people), but it was expected since we knew we would not be right on the beach. The pool was nice & kept up well (I didn't use it but the kids did) - and it was very convenient to our location. Would definitely stay here again! (The only VERY MINOR suggestion I would make is to provide some kind of reference to show TV channels for the different TVs - it took us a while to figure out & locate channels we wanted.)

The Spot to be on 30A

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience staying at the tall cool one first of all was excellent. Everything upon arrival was in clean and pristine condition. The condo was fully stocked with kitchen utensils including a few things we had forgotten which was very nice! There was also a breathtaking view of the ocean from the private top floor balcony. One thing we liked the most about staying here was the location. It was far enough out of Destin to avoid traffic and the crowd but close enough to all the hot spots. The beaches right down the street were amazing and there was a cool local artist village right down the street that is worth checking out. We WILL be back as soon as we can. It was certainly a vacation to remember.

Tall Cool One

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent the week in the Tall Cool One and were very pleased with our stay. The rental was exactly as pictured and was stocked with most supplies needed. The beach access was a short walk, as were several restaurants. We used the tennis court and pools daily. Management suggested Jongle Beach for bike, beach chairs, and umbrellas rentals, and they were fantastic to work with. With 10 people in the unit, we didn't feel crowded at all. A great family vacation!

Wonderful Experience at the Legends!

  • 4 of 5

7 of us enjoyed this nicely decorated, clean townhouse. There was plenty of room and baths for everyone. We spent a lot of time on our balconies, I loved the one off my master bedroom. The easy walk to the beach access and having the pool in front of our property made it so easy to cool off.

The furnishings were really comfy. An easy ride to Watercolor and Seaside! We enjoyed our stay and would like to come back. Hated leaving :(

Great Place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your condo. The only down side would be how many steps! We had a large group, but there was plenty of room for all and plenty of privacy as well. A short walk to the beach. The beach was amazing! The water for the first part of our stay was sparkling blue-green and clear. We were able to find a starfish, seahorse and a puffer fish in the water. Would love to make this our yearly place to stay.

Owner's Response: You are correct about the steps but they are part of what provides a great view of this amazing 30A sunsets. Glad you had a great time at the beach and hope you return again. Thank you for writing your review!
